Getting ready to #coatalong

Hello there! Well, today is the start of the #coatalong and typically I have a small boy home sick and last week flew by with secret sewing and other family related situations taking up my time, so I've not been able to write the blog posts I'd been hoping too. Ho hum. I did spend some time last week putting together a Pinterest board with interesting articles I've found about pattern matching, coat-alongs and interlining which will hopefully be interesting to you - if you find any other articles let me know and I'll make sure to add them as well as link up each of my blog posts so that you can follow along if you fancy.

So, excitingly, my second attempt at ordering coat fabric arrived yesterday. Woo hoo! I really love it and I think it's going to look amazing with the musical notes lining although I do admit to having slight (okay, many!) panic moments over pattern matching. What have I done choosing patterned fabric?! But I'm going with lots of prep and planning before any actual cutting....

Today I'm going to focus on finishing a couple of bee blocks that need doing and then I will begin cutting out all the pattern pieces. There are So. Many. Pieces!!!!! I fear it may take me all week just to do that! And then I'll make a start on a muslin.

There is no real schedule - partly because life is a little bit hectic and I don't want to over promise - and also because the idea is that we all sew at our own pace and give each other support. However, my plan is to post each week my plans, progress and failures (although hopefully there won't be too many of those!). See you soon,


Today's sky - overcast, grey and very rainy. Boo!
